This full-sized Perovskia is excellent for massing in large landscapes where low maintenance plantings are desired. Pollinators flock to its huge panicles of soft lavender blue flowers which persist for several months at the height of summer. Its silvery green, fragrant foliage is rarely bothered by pests. Thrives in heat.
This mid-sized Perovskia is one of the earliest to bloom beginning in midsummer.

A bit shorter than the species, this selection maintains a more compact, upright habit in the landscape. Large panicles of lavender blue flowers appear for several months and are excellent for cutting. Small, aromatic, gray-green leaves are rarely bothered by pests. Thrives in heat.
Selected for its shorter, more compact habit, this truly dwarf variety starts small and remains relatively short through the years. It bears some of the largest flower spires of any compact variety, featuring loads of lavender blue flowers on stiff stems above the silvery green, highly dissected foliage. Thrives in heat.
